5 reasons why Natural Matte should be your next metal finish choice
Thanks to its unique satin texture and light-disruptive surface, Natural Matte dissipates light evenly. Much like organic textures, Steelscape’s Natural Matte recreates the light interaction of natural elements to deliver refined color in all lighting conditions. By dissipating rather than reflecting light, Natural Matte avoids harsh unwanted shine and glare while providing rich color depth.
The shine seen on surfaces including metal, can be measured using two different measurements – gloss and sheen. Both relate to the amount of reflected light observed on a surface but at different viewing angles. Lab testing shows Natural Matte generates low levels of gloss and sheen rarely seen on metal surfaces. Natural Matte enables metal to be used in all new environments, including in restrictive homeowner associations or on projects seeking to limit the visible shine on roofing and siding surfaces.
Steelscape worked with industry experts in color trends and exterior building design to select a broad and restrained color palette. Natural Matte’s six colors are designed to suit a wide range of environments and applications seeking to limit visible shine. A key design purpose of flat or matte colors is to improve integration with other materials and natural environments, and the Natural Matte color palette reinforces this. It provides broader design flexibility, reduces clashing design themes in addition to capturing the growing design shift to matte surfaces.
While offering a groundbreaking light-disruptive finish, Natural Matte features proven underlying paint technology. By using the support of a proven paint technology widely used in the construction industry today, Natural Matte can be formed into a wide range of metal roofing and siding products without issue. This includes standing seam roofing, flush wall panels, and ribbed architectural siding profiles.
